A client wanted a professional portrait taken for profile documents and what not so I shot a whole series of this guy. The rain clouds were hanging in the sky and gave me the perfect diffuser light. I try to work as much as I can outside in natural light or inside with window light and a day like this gives you a rich and "full" light in my view. Direct and strong sunlight works in places like in the mountains, in the desert and at sea where the air is free from all the stuff we put in the air in the cities. I found this locations near a big old temple in the hear of Tokyo. Simple, plain. strong lines and with a certain location feeling to it.
